The creative minds behind Netflix’s Stranger Things, Matt and Ross Duffer, have hinted at an end game for their massive hit. During a recent interview, the Duffer brothers gave insight into their vision of ending the hugely popular show after only four seasons.
According to the siblings, Netflix has shown loyalty and have already renewed the show through its third season.
“We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” Ross said.
Netflix has been rather hush-hush on the extension and ultimate finale, and understandably so. In efforts to keep their massive appeal it would be reckless to announce the show’s ending should the creators have a change of heart or epiphany of creative thought.
While news of this show’s imminent ending will no doubt bum some fans of the show, the Season 2 trailer – shown below – dropped at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year and has hinted at new things – possibly even a new monster. Other information has been minimal but this season has been promised to be darker and feature more horror-based tropes.
The Duffer brothers playfully teased they want to “push things a bit.”
Season 2 of Netflix’s Stranger Things premieres October 27.
